[Project_owners] Requirements for update.mozilla.org

To add the HON extensions I wrote, I had to submit a bug with the 
following information:

- Home page of the extension
- Name and description of the extension with links to the XPIs (on 
Mozdev, but any link will do just fine)

For the Firefox extensions, they asked to make sure that the maxVer in 
the install.rdf is 0.9+. update.rdf is not required.

They contacted me directly to file a bug and already had the description 
of the extensions, so I guess they took it from ExtensionRoom...

You can also look on bugzilla to see how it was done for other extensions.
